Fall & Something Fishy

fawnskin fall

Now, fall in the mountain resort of Fawnskin is breathtaking.

Honestly, not a day goes by that I don’t enjoy the surroundings and the subtle changes of the scenery, wildlife, and shifts in the day-to-day happenings around town.

This week the trees have suddenly decided to change their foliage.

Vibrant shades of amber and red are emerging on many of the trees, framed between the evergreens.

It is simply breathtaking.

I especially love the maples throughout the area that turn gradually from orange to a brilliant red.

This fall is nice because it is still warm enough to be in my hammock during the afternoons.

But something fishy was going on Wednesday.

Seriously, I came back up from my medical appointment down-the-hill and needed some hammock time to recover.

Imagine my surprise when the “thump” that I assumed was a pine cone plummeting down from the tree–was not a pine cone at all.

In fact, it was a trout!

Now I live above the lake, but up on a hill, so this was something odd.

I had noticed a hawk circling above my deck for several minutes but I hadn’t thought he was a skillful, fishing enthusiast–apparently I should have noticed that he was–because how else could that fish have landed on my deck?

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction!

Too bad I didn’t notice earlier, rigamortis had begun to set in–otherwise it might have been someone’s dinner!
